The Oscars just aren't the Oscars without a handful of controversial snubs. Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic), Barbara Streisand (Yentl), Gene Kelly (Singing in the Rain) have all infamously missed out on acting or directing nods, while Citizen Kane, Goodfellas, The Dark Knight and Apocalypse Now are just some of the big screen classics whose omission in their year's Best Picture category still has us shaking our heads.
